ABOUT THE AUTHORS
AUTHOR: John Shimer
As co-author of “HUMAN PREDATORS”, John Shimer calls on his life experience as a high profile consultant to explain the dark and dangerous side of human beings.
“Predatory humans are everywhere among us, yet no one prepares us. Unprepared, we are nothing more than “prey animals” in the eyes of human predators; people who receive their greatest pleasure from tormenting us with their lies, their head games, their manipulations and abuse.”
John is the author of many books including, “Turn Right at the Dancing Cow”, “Secrets to BIG MONEY Fundraising”, “Secrets to Financial Success in Marriage”, “Bubblegum for the Soul”, and “Be Someone’s Miracle”. Now retired, John has over fifty years experience managing multimillion dollar fundraising campaigns for nonprofit organizations.
AUTHOR: Christian Shimer
As a digital filmmaker over the last 18 years who specialized in telling the stories of non-profit organizations, Christian Shimer has been exposed to the goodness and evil of human nature with a long interest in psychology.
"Why has no one written a book that prepares us for the everyday sociopaths we all come into contact with? We wanted to resolve that in a way that was easy to access and which offers real, practical advice we can use in our daily lives."
Christian also has experience as a cruise director for Royal Caribbean International, a radio personality, a comedy writer, and he has been a student of human behavior and sociology throughout his life. He is author of the book "Secrets to Big Money Using Video - The Art of the Video Case Statement".
This book provides the reader with the knowledge to identify and deal with predators in one’s life. I wish I had read this book before the bullying I experienced took such a high toll on my organization, my professional passion for the programs I created and even on my personal life.

If only I had read this book in my 20's. Now in my 70's I can see how many sociopaths I came across and never realized it until now. These insights could come in handy in the insurance industry which I worked for so long to weed out those who were just stringing us along.
It was so helpful to understand some of the mechanisms that people use to play on my weaknesses and deceive. It helped me shift from automatically trusting everyone to cautious skepticism.

HUMAN PREDATORS IN THE NEWS
A 17-year-old boy died by suicide hours after being scammed. The FBI says it's part of a troubling increase in 'sextortion' cases.
The scammer -- posing as a young girl -- sent Ryan a nude photo and then asked Ryan to share an explicit image of himself in return. Immediately after Ryan shared an intimate photo of his own, the cybercriminal demanded $5,000, threatening to make the photo public and send it to Ryan's family and friends.
The San Jose, California, teen told the cybercriminal he could not pay the full amount, and the demand was ultimately lowered to a fraction of the original figure -- $150. But after paying the scammers from his college savings, Stuart said, "They kept demanding more and more and putting lots of continued pressure on him."
By 2 a.m., he had been scammed, and taken his life. Ryan left behind a suicide note describing how embarrassed he was for himself and the family.
